About I will not kick my friends:

"Kathleen Winter is unusually attuned to the intersection of the imagined and the common place. She weaves her loves — personal, artistic, intellectual — into her daily life, making this a book of passionate intimacies. Kathleen's attitude — her appetite — is made clear by her vision of Eve in the poem, 'Noir' — 'He offered me the apple — / what could I do?' This is a wonderful book."
—Bob Hicok

"Sparkling, satirical, and highly referential, Winter's poems offer deep rewards. They consistently resist scholarly insularity, and the overall effect is a refreshingly choral, intoxicating verse."
—Jane Satterfield
